All had 72-hoIe totals of 270, 14-under par on the Rancho Park golf course. Hill, the last man to finish, and the six-foot-six Archer each had a five-under-par 66 on the final day and Aaron, who sported a tliree-stroke lead going into the round, had a 69. It was the fourth time in as many years that this tourna- .menl had ended in a playoff. But it was the first time it will go to 18 holes. The others had been sudden-death. It was set up in that fashion because of television commit- ments, and neither Aaron nor Archer knew about it before- hand. The playoff was scheduled to start at p.m. MST. PREFER SUDDEN-DEATH All three playoff participants said they would have preferred a sudden-death affair. "I'm hitting the ball so shabby I've got a better chance in one or two holes than I have in said Hill. "Well, 18 holes is a better test of Aaron said. "But next week the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am is on three courses and 1 think we'd all like to get up there and have a chance to practise over all three courses." Archer and Aaron were play- ing together Sunday with Hill one group behind them. Aaron got himself in trouble on each of the last three holes and had to make beautiful long- approach putts to salvage pars. Archer, meanwhile, stroked an iron to within eight inches on the par-three ?7th for an easy bird and Lied the count on the 18th. Hill last year settled out of court a S3-million suit against the Professional Golfers' Asso- ciation, a settlement that in- cluded the lifting of a one-year's probation levied against the player. He made a scrambling par with a 15-foot putt on the 16th then missed the green and had to come up with a brilliant sec- ond shot, a difficult, delicate downhill chip, to make par on the 17fh. He hit a great drive on the 18th, then a "trashy looking ap- proach" that left him with a 30- foot putt. He lined it up, brushed the hair out of his eyes and ran it dead in the heart of the hole. It was a three-man race all the way with Chris Blocker fin- ishing alone in fourth at 275, five strokes back. Bob Rosburg and Hale Irwin tied at 276. Edge Centennials Pats increase lead By THE CANADIAN PEESS Upsets in Saskatchewan have kept Calgary Centennials from building up a comfortable first- place margin in the Western Di- vision of the Western Canada Hockey League.

Toronto had edge over Alberta Capital Edmonton to host Commonwealth games? MONTREAL (CP) The City of Edmonton is Canada's nomi- nee for the 1978 Commonwealth Games site. The Alberta capital was cho- sen over Toronto Saturday by the British Commonwealth Games Association of Canada after presentations by the groups representing the two cit- ies. The Edmonton ing Mayor Ivor Dent, Horst Schmid, Alberta's minister of culture, youth and recreation and Dr. Maury Van Vliet, deam of the physical education de- partment at the University of Alberta, made a one-hour pres- entation to the seven-man selec- tion committee as did the group from Toronto, headed by Ab Campbell, chairman of Metro- politan Toronto council. Final choice of a location for the 1978 Games will be made in Munich, West Germany, Aug. 24, during the 1S72 Summer Olympics, at a meeting of the 45 members of the Games' federa- tion. In addition to Edmonton, Mel- bourne, Australia- New Delhi, India; Kuala Lumpur, Malay- sia; Leeds, England; Port of Spain, Trinidad-Tobago; Hong Kong and Swansea, Wales, have indicated interest in staging the Games. The 1970 Games were held Edinburgh, Scotland. New Ze- land will play host to the event in 1974. Canada, founder of the Games, has held them Hamilton, in 1930 and at Van- couver in 1954. Of countries reg- istering bids for the 1978 event, Hong Kong, India. Malaysia and Trinidad-Tobago have never had the Games. The Edmonton group arrived at the meetings armed with a multi-colored, fact-filled bro- chure and a direct commitment from the Alberta government. In a letter of endorsement lor the Edmonton hid, Premier Peter Lougheed assured tlw selection committee that "the resources, within reason, of many of our government de- partments will be placed behind Edmonton's efforts." Mayor Dent said that his city fits almost perfectly the type of host city the founders of the Games had in mind. "It is big enough lu put on the Games and small enough to put Golden Bears drop U.B.C. twice By THE CANADIAN PRESS University of Alberta Golden Bears swept their weekend doubleheader against Universi- ty of British Columbia Thunder- birds and jumped into first place in the Rockies division of Western Canada Inter-Collegi- ate Athletic Association Basket- ball. The Golden Bears took Fri- day's game in Edmonton and Saturday's 72-69. In other games, University of Saskatchewan Saskatoon Cam- pus Huskies defeated Universi- ty of Winnipeg Wesmen 79-67 Friday but lost to the visiting Wesmen 73-72 Saturday. University of Victoria Vikings beat University of Calgary Din- osaurs 62-57 Saturday in Cal- gary while in Regina, Univer- sity of Saskatchewan Cougars took a 66-59 win over Univer- sity of Brandon Bobcats. The other Saturday game saw Uni- versity of Manitoba Bisons clobber SI. Andrews Super Saints 73-56 in an exhibition game at Winnipeg. The Golden Bears and Thun- derbirds each have six wins and two losses but Alberta's two wins against UBC made the difference in the standings. In Saturday's game, Mike Frisby led the Bears with 17 points, closely followed by Mar- ty Lyons with 15 and Bob Mor- ris and Tom Solyom each with 11. Darryl Jerneas had 25 points for the Thunderbirds while Stan Callegare added 15 and Ron Thorson 14. tliem on he said, indicating the city's pop- ulation. The Edmonton mayor outlined some proposed facilities that will be built should the city's bid be successful. They include a ?3.5-million stadium at the University of Alberta for ath- letic events; a cycling track adjacent to the stadium; and a Olympic standard, 10-lane pool and div- ing facility. Also in the offing for the Al- berta capital is a multi-purpose, downtown centre, capable of accommodat- ing most indoor events simulta- neously. This has already been rejected by Edmonton voters, but is expected to be the subject of another ballot, the mayor added. The Edmonton bid noted the city has a ready-made Games' village already complete, with the residence halls of the Uni- versity of Alberta capable of housing athletes in modern surroundings. The Toronto proposal leaned heavily on existing facilities at Park of the Canadian National Exhibition. The To- ronto plans called for construc- tion of an eight-lane, suitably- surfaced track in the seat CNE of Toronto Argonauts of the Eastern Foot- ball Conference. The stadium now has a six-lane facility for track events, with the infield available for field competitions. LOCAL CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS OFFICE Requires AUDIT and ACCOUNTING TECHNICIANS!
